In a long overdue celebration the Australian Racing Drivers Club (ARDC) will celebrate the fabulous Alfa Romeo through it’s heyday over three decades in Australian Motorsport.
During the upcoming Queens Birthday long weekend June 9th – 11th Sydney Motorsport Park invites Alfa Romeo owners to the Australian Muscle Car Masters onsite at Sydney Motorsport Park where you’ll witness a great selection of Alfa Romeo race cars and of course the legendary drivers like John French, Kevin Bartlett, Fred Gibson and Colin Bond, plus a special tribute year to the ladies of motorsport.
Road cars are invited over the 2 days of the event with ‘preferred parking’ internally on the ARDC figure 8 circuit as a featured Marque close to all the action with Drivers admitted free to the event.
So throw on some period stickers to your 1750 or 2 litre GTV so it looks like an old racer, as we’re also including Parade Laps during the event led by an authentic pace car.
We’d love to see Classic Alfa road and race cars from the early 60’s to the late 80’s, so please email with your interest to: Todd Martin, email@example.com or 0428 487 981.
The Great Race, which was started by the Australian Racing Drivers’ Club in 1962 and run by the club for many years, has seen so many amazing motorsport moments, but Ford’s legendary 1-2 finish in the 1977 Hardie-Ferodo 1000 is remembered as one of the greatest.
The #1 Falcon of Allan Moffat paired with Jacky Ickx, and the #2 Falcon of Colin Bond and Alan Hamilton famously paired up to take the chequered flag in first and second place, cementing the moment in history.
The ARDC recognises this great moment in motorsport, and the achievements of former ARDC Board Member Allan Moffat and former ARDC President Colin Bond, with the naming of two turns in their honour at the Club‘s current home, Sydney Motorsport Park.
From October 2017, Turn 1 will be known as Moffat Corner, and Turn 2 as Bond Bend.
